These things frequently aren't even very convenient, though! I remember reading an article by someone who had "smart lights" that could be turned on and off through an app, which worked until they had to get a babysitter, at which point they realized that guests were unable to turn the lights on and off, and the best solution to this they could come up with was taping an old android phone to the wall to re-invent the light switch.
